Organic azides: “energetic reagents” for the intermolecular amination of C–H bonds

Author affiliations

Abstract

This feature article provides an overview of the application of organic azides for the intermolecular amination of sp3 and sp2 C–H bonds. The catalytic activity of several metal complexes was reviewed underlining both synthetic and mechanistic aspects of the C–H amination. The majority of the aminated compounds reported in literature have been collected in this paper to provide a compendium of published procedures. In addition, the discussion of involved mechanisms has been included to assist the reader to envisage the future potential of organic azides in the synthesis of aza-derivatives.
